The Belgian’s move to Germany could trigger a succession of striker moves.
The Belgian’s impending move to the Bundesliga could trigger a succession of striker moves with Dortmund happy to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal once a replacement is through the door, according to BBC Sport.
BBC Sport understands that discussions had taken place between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur over a swap deal involving Batshuayi and Fernando Llorente, which now appears to be off the table.
Having been a serial substitute for the last 18 months, the 24-year-old would not have wanted to go from being Alvaro Morata’s deputy, to performing the same role for Harry Kane.
Batshuayi should get more regular football stepping into Aubameyang’s shoes at Dortmund and will hope to find the sort of form which will earn him a place in Belgium’s World Cup squad.
